What are your fees?
$130 for an individual or family session.
Do you take insurance?
I am currently an in-network provider with BlueCross and BlueShield. For insurances where I am not “in-network,” most other insurances do provide “out of network coverage” which allows you to choose your preferred provider. If you choose the “out of network” option you pay in full at the time of services, and then file a claim with your insurance company for partial reimbursement. I can provide you with the information that you need to file a claim with your insurance company.
What will the first session be like?
During our first session, my goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. It can be intimidating to sit across from a stranger and say I need help. My goal is to establish a relationship that is based in compassion and non-judgement. My hope is that counseling is a space where you feel safe to learn to be real with yourself, to practice self-compassion, and to find ways to overcome painful experiences.
How often do we meet?
This is entirely up to what your needs are and the best way counseling can support you. This can be as often as twice a week or even once a month.
How do you choose a counselor?
Check credentials for the counselor and ensure that the they have the necessary skills and expertise. Also, make sure that the counselor is a good fit for you. This is essential!
Is it confidential?
Yes. By law I am required to protect your confidentiality. There are some exceptions to this that we will discuss in our first session and this includes if you or someone know is at risk of harm to self or others.
